Automatic Marked Register Processing

On polling day, at every polling station, there is a printed off copy of the electoral register, with the names of everyone who can vote in that place.

When you vote, they cross your name off the list.

The result is called a ‘marked’ register, and it looks like this:

After the election, the marked register gets scanned, and political parties can get the scans.

This is really valuable data, because we can see who voted and who didn’t vote.

But it used to take a lot of manual work to get this data into our database. You had to go through it manually, line by line, recording who voted and who didn’t.

Now we have solved this problem using machine learning, and party activists across the country are saving thousands of hours every year.
